What a quality of life improvement this was. Cutting a simple MFT-style sacrificial surface with lots of clamping holes and replacing the stock sacrificial surface on the Shaper Origin Workstation with something far larger. 20mm dog holes, counter sunk holes for the mounting bolts, and softly sanded edges for handling and the inevitable clonking the MDF surface against something hard like concrete.
In other news, have spent three blissful days in my workshop: installed new shop fans to contend with the warm weather, tacked down lose cables on the shop lights so they no longer catch on the workshop door as the door rolls up, sorted out the ever growing lumber pile and disposed of the scrap wood, created new mounting brackets for the Fastcap Helping Hand poles (pictured on the Shaper Origin Workstation), and started cutting out the parts for a new lumber rack that I will install next week.
Overall, this has been a pretty awesome week of not stressing about anything work related for the first time in eight months. Life is pretty damn perfect right now.
